: A LEGEND OF VANDALE

A Comedietta in One Act by ALBERT E. DRINKWATER
From Birmingham
The Scene is the entrance hall of Vandate
Towers, an old mansion, now somewhat decayed, recently bought by Nora Lorraine. the last of her line. It is almost ten o'clock on December 20, and the candles are guttering in the draught which Dennis is striving to stop at the windows. Nora has found in an-old box a legend of the family dating back to Cavalier times, and. half in fun and lialf in earnest, has dressed herself in the period of 1045, and awaits developments.

: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA
Leader, FRANK CANTELL. Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
GALATEA is a sea-nymph whom the shepherd Acis has wooed and won.
The giant Polyphemus comes on the scene. He covets Galatea and declaims in a preliminary Recitative about his feelings. He melodramatically declares that the god of Love has ' stabbed him to the heart,' and in the Air that follows, ' O rudd er than the cherry,' sings the praises of Galatea's beauty. The words are these :—
Recit.
I rage—I melt—I burn ;
The feeble god has stabbed me to the heart. Thou trusty pine, -
Prop of my godlike steps, I lay thee by ! Bring me a hundred reeds of decent growth. To make a pipe for my capacious mouth ; In soft enchanting accents let me breathe Sweet Galatea's beauty, and my love.
Air.
O ruddier than the cherry ! O sweeter than the berry !
0 nymph, more bright Than moonshine night,
Like kidlings, blithe and merry ; Ripe as the melting cluster, No lily has such lustre :
Yet hard to tame
As raging flame,
And fiereo as storms that bluster !

A LEGEND has grown in Eigg and Uist about the ' Christ Child's Lullaby.' It tells how, when a hard stepmother had caused a shiftless lad to leave horn she one night had a vision of the Holy Mother lulling her Baby to sleep, and at her feet was the shiftless laddie. The stepmother's heart was touched, and she took the boy back and gave him her love. This is the lullaby, they say, that Mary the mother was singing. (The Gaelic verses wore written by the ' King-priest ' of Eriskay, Father Allan Mae donald, and the tune was noted from the singing of Mrs. John Masinnes. )

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
